LA Observed on KCRW: East-West axis

jmichaelwalker-map-piece.jpgIn my Monday afternoon column coming up on KCRW, I praise today's Expo Line shovel ceremony in Santa Monica. Among its other attributes, the project could help bridge the cultural gap between Eastside and Westside in Los Angeles, as could the original J. Michael Walker map of literary L.A. that's on display at the Libros Schmibros pop-up store in Westwood. The commentary airs at 6:44 p.m. on 89.9 FM (during NPR's "All Things Considered.") It's also online at

Map note: LAO's Veronique de Turenne is one of the authors mentioned on Walker's 23-foot-wide map.
